On June 30, Dr. William D. Bowling will retire as Director of Education at Jackson-Feild’s on-campus Gwaltney School. For 24 years, he was progressive in creating and developing innovative educational services to meet the needs of children with severe mental health disorders.

Before Jackson-Feild, Bowling was a high school teacher; a principal at the elementary, middle and high school levels; a Secondary School Supervisor; a Director of Instruction; and a Superintendent of School for several public school divisions.

As invaluable as Bowling’s background and experience has been to Jackson-Feild, it been especially so to its students. For students wanting to take college-level coursework, Bowling established online education programs with the University of Nebraska, University of Missouri, and Brigham Young University.  He also partnered with Southside Virginia Community College to provide career and technical education.

Under Bowling’s leadership, classrooms at Gwaltney School were equipped with the technology necessary for distance learning. He developed the “student on a string” effort in which students who have left Jackson-Feild are able to remain enrolled in Gwaltney School so that they are able to complete their education and earn their GED. He outfitted the classrooms with the technology for distance learning.

Bowling’s career began in 1961 as a high school teacher primarily of math and science. His first administrative position was Principal of Gloucester High School followed by Principal in three other school divisions. He has also been the Director of Information Management for Essex County Schools, and an adjunct faculty member at Rappahannock Community College.

Bowling received his undergraduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, his Master of Education Degree from the College of Williams & Mary, and his Doctorate from the University of Virginia. Along the way, he obtained numerous certificates from multiple universities.

Bowling will be deeply missed at Jackson-Feild.  His vision, foresight, and leadership have left an everlasting and indelible impact on everyone, especially the students who have attended Gwaltney School.
